Culling the Herd

Well, I’ve had it cleaning up hippo feces, so I’m cutting back on the sheer volume of hippos around here.  Honestly, I had over 130 of the lovely beasts in my little 2-bedroom apartment.  I just got done posting 41 of them on eBay (40 postings, two of them come as a pair), and have a bag of about 10 more ready to go to Goodwill.

I had tried to cut back on my books…  I posted a lot of them on and a few on Amazon, but not that many sold.  It was good to get a little extra money from those that did… My friend Sherry said she’d try to come over this weekend and make me an offer on what’s left.

Developing non-attachment is never easy.  And it’s harder when you try to find new homes for your stuff, and few respond.

My music project, now dubbed Project Moss, is underway.  I have 9 new recordings, and the experience from doing those is allowing me to cut out some earlier recorded performances (late 2006) from a series of long, continuous files, giving me 7 more songs.  Only a few friends have suggested themselves as repositories for the outcome of this project so far, but then I don’t know when I’ll be done.
